XML newbee ask for some help trying to build a nested datagrid

i'm developing a faq session of our website and I'm facing some
problems handling xml files and DataSet relations

First off all, here's the structure of my xml file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<topic order="1" title="General" >
<item order="1" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>
<item order="2" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>
<topic order="2" title="Police Office">
<item order="1" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>
<topic order="2" title="Ensuranc e">
<item order="1" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>
<item order="2" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>
<item order="3" question="blabl abla?">
<answer>blablab la</answer>

and so on...This structure is acceptable? I'm forgetting something? I
know it doesnt have an schema, but I havent learned how to build one

Now the code

I have two datagrids, as the MS sample (in
but I have changed something to simplify

private void Page_Load(objec t sender, System.EventArg s e)
{ // Put user code to initialize the page here
string filename = Server.MapPath( ".");
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.Load(filena me + "\\perguntas.xm l");

// this function reads the xml file and create 3 tables (topics, itens
and answers) whithin a dataset ds
ds = ReadXml(doc);
ds.Relations.Ad d("rel", ds.Tables["topics"].Columns["order"],
grid1.DataSourc e = ds;
grid1.DataMembe r = "topics";
grid1.DataKeyFi eld = "order";
grid1.DataBind( ); }

up to here, everything is ok, I can load the xml file and show the
first level of it (the <topic) tag's colection with a '+' at the left
side where I want the child elements (in this case the <itens> tags)

Now the problem. When I click in the '+' column the event
OnSelectedIndex Changed is fired.

//delegate for OnSelectedIndex Changed of Grid1
protected void grid1_OnSelecte dIndexChanged(S ystem.Object sender,
System.EventArg s e) {
this.Showdetail grid(); }

Following, the function that handles the event (where the error come

// handle the event
protected void Showdetailgrid( ) {
if(grid1.Select edIndex != -1)
DataView parentrows = new DataView();
DataView childrows;
DataRowView currentparentro w;
parentrows.Tabl e = ds.Tables["itens"];
currentparentro w = parentrows[grid1.SelectedI ndex];
childrows = currentparentro w.CreateChildVi ew("rel"); ***

grid2.DataSourc e = childrows;
grid2.DataBind( );
grid2.Visible = true;
grid2.Visible = false;

When the line with *** is executed I got the following error:

System.Argument Exception: The relation is not parented to the table to
which this DataView points.

Could someone help me please?

Hi, I almost have my nested datagrid working properly. I created a datagrid on a user control and dropped that onto another datagrid. At first, I noticed when I was stepping through the code, that the update linkbutton actually goes to the edit command instead of the update command (which I'm pretty sure would be a bug). Anyway, I took out the editcommmand column and replaced it with a regular template column. Within the...

I have a datagrid with another datagrid in a template column. For the second datagrids datasource I use container.dataitem.createchildview("relationship") I want to discover if the nested datagrid has any rows. I think I need to check the datagrid.items.count on the second datagrid in the first datagrids ItemCreated event but I can't seem to figure out how to address the second datagrid. Does anyone have any ideas?

I can't figure out how to use the EditCommand for the nested datagrid .. HELP PLEASE ;-) It works perfectly for the parent datagrid, but will not display, even though the EditCommand event is firing for the child datagrid.

I am using the OnItemDataBound event of Repeater control to nest a DataGrid within the Repeater. When I attempt to bind to the DataGrid using the DataSource method I get the error message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". This error message commonly occurs when a server control is incorrecly declared, so naturally I have double checked this. To test this, I moved the aspx code for the DataGrid ('myNestedDataGrid')...

I have a DataGrid nested within a DataList. The DataGrid generates LinkButtons with specific CommandName values. I cannot figure out how to trap this event. I need to know which DataGrid LinkButton was selected. Thanks in advance.

I don't know the formal approach to these things but I haven't come across an RE grammar before, not for an entire language anyway. The usual approach if you're not using external tools is to program using 'recursive descent' or top-down, whatever the term is. In this case the grammar is built-in to the code. You...
